His passionate commitment to the beauty and achievements of this country, and his balanced yet optimistic belief in its future are infectious... More

I recently spent two and a half fascinating weeks in South Africa, on a Leakey Foundation tour, led by Clive De Bruyne. He was exceptional as a tour leader and guide, focused every moment on making the trip educational in the highest degree, as well as extremely pleasant and comfortable. We were all impressed with his knowledge of the country,... More

My sixth trip to Africa was last month and I can honestly say, Clive was the best guide I have ever had while traveling the continent. South Africa, in particular, is a country with so much to offer...so many layers and you need someone who understands the history, the culture, the politics and the environment. Clive was so well versed... More

My family toured Cape Town, Table Mountain, and Robben Island with Clive and we had an outstanding experience. Clive is very organized and experienced. He was right on-time and had planned our day to maximize our time with minimum time spent standing in lines. I would highly recommend Clive!

Clive's encyclopaedic knowledge of his city and country and his ability to condense a huge amount of beauty, knowledge and hidden gems of the area along with his engaging manner and individual attention made the tour par excellence and added...
